Tru-test ID5000 Scale Indicator 


Weighing decisions made easy.

Quickly capture accurate animal weights to provide information you can act on to maximise profitability. Use it to identify poor performers, catch health issues early or easily split your animals into groups.

Tru-Test’s unique Superdamp 4™ weighing technology locks onto the weight of the liveliest animals faster than ever before. Combined with a rugged design, suitable for even the most extreme outdoor environments, Tru-Test’s weigh scale indicators have earned a global reputation as the animal weight capture and data management solution.

And now we have developed the next generation. The 5000 series.

The ID5000 is faster to set up and access information, with a high brightness screen that is clearly visible in the yards. It also has more options to speed up data transfer and increased storage capacity. 

It’s never been easier to track the performance of your animals and make better informed decisions.



  • Record what you need. Capacity to store up to 250 thousand records in 250 weighing sessions. For each animal you can record up to 3 IDs and 3 pieces of information (other than weight).
  • Track performance. Calculate and visualize an animal’s weight gain.

  • Sorting. Sort animals into groups. Up to 5 groups can be created based on weight, weight gain, or other single criteria.

  • Screen viewable in all light conditions. The 7" high brightness display automatically switches between indoor and outdoor mode making it viewable even in the harshest light conditions.

  • Proven speed. Tru-Test’s unique Superdamp 4TM technology locks onto the weight of a moving animal faster than any other indicators on the market.

  • Navigate and enter information quickly. Quick access keys and keypad avoids obscuring screen with dirty ngers.
